Trust us, they’re as wearable as neutrals too!

As intimate as our love affair with neutral bags are, we must admit, a bright-colored one is always a temptation. Something about the sweet pop of a pink minibag, or the dazzle of a yellow purse makes our heart pump twice as fast, driving us to finally give in. And in the few times we have, we’ve never felt regretful–quite the opposite actually, because as you’ll soon learn, a vivid shade is a great addition to anyone's wardrobe. Ahead, we’ll show you outfits by influencers who’ve proven this sentiment true.

Here are eight ways to style bright-colored bags, as seen on influencers:

1. Opposite Sides of the Spectrum

Blue and red are on the opposite sides of the color wheel, making them the most contrasting colors to each other, and also a potentially interesting outfit pairing. Case in point: Rhea Bue’s look which sees a head-to-toe outfit in blue with the exception of a bright red bag. Is it daring? Yes. Does it work? Absolutely.

2. Matchy-Matchy

Possibly the easiest way to style a brightly-colored bag is with a dress in the same color. Vern Enciso shows us how it’s done with a green dress and purse that look perfectly coordinated. Although she wears it as a beach look, we can totally imagine the matching dress-and-purse concept for a more formal affair.

3. With a Muted Outfit

Camille Co-Koro makes a case for the multi-bag with a red Chanel purse that sees two compartments. With all its chains, pouches, and of course, eye-catching color, the best way to style it is with muted colors from head to toe. Wear your favorite gray lounge set, a classic black blazer, and let your bag(s) be the star of the show.

4. Play with Color

Sometimes, a random color combination works just because. Take a look at Chi Gibbs’s sunny outfit which sees her striped orange and purple shirt with a blue bag. It just goes to show that you really just need to experiment with the unexpected and hope for the best!

5. With a Prairie Dress 

For the girl who loves a prairie dress but doesn’t want to go full #Cottagecore with a woven basket bag, make like Martine Cajucom-Ho and go for something pink. Hers is done in a sweet baby tone, holding on to that gentle femininity that fits that old-world charm, but in a silhouette that feels practical for today.

6. With Matching Shoes

Matching your accessories together is always safe, but when done in an eye-catching palette, it's incredibly satisfying to look at. Just take a look at this outfit by Laureen Uy, which sees a bag and chunky sneakers done in the same bright green colorway. As out-there as it is, the matching colors make for a well-coordinated look.

7. With a Matching Hat

Here’s another play on matching accessories, this time, with a hat! Ashley Garcia brings the funkiness with an all-black look and patterned accessories in the same color. There’s a certain cheekiness about it that we love, one that we’re definitely taking cues from for our next OOTD.

8. Break up the Seriousness

If your date night look is feeling a little too serious, grab a bright bag to add some zest. Rei Germar shows us how to do it, wearing a prim and proper blouse-and-shorts ensemble with an eye-catching green purse. It adds a special final touch that brings a dash of fun while staying chic.
